Hip and Knee

Ideal Results for Hip & Knee Doctors

Hip pain and knee pain injuries are common lower extremity issues, commonly caused by sports injuries. Conditions of the lower extremity are common and require specialized care. The lower extremity does most of our weight bearing and the joint surfaces are vulnerable to wear and tear in adults. Examples of injuries to the lower extremity include ankle sprains, ACL tears, and muscle contusions.

Knee Surgery & Hip Surgery

If you have recently had knee surgery or hip surgery, you should consider physical therapy to be part of your rehabilitation plan. The muscles and joints in our lower body work together to form a "kinetic chain". A kinetic chain refers to a series of muscles and joints that move together in perfect synchronization to complete complex movements like walking or running. In fact, the human body is a complex set of systems, and like all systems, it can only be pushed to a certain limit. If one of the pieces in the kinetic chain becomes injured, the whole kinetic chain will malfunction. Knee surgery and foot surgery and physical therapy are vital to restoring proper mobility.

When you are considering a rehabilitation program regarding a single muscle or joint, it's very important to develop a program that includes the full kinetic chain. It is not uncommon for our physical therapists to apply treatment techniques to the hip area in patients who have sustained an ankle or knee injury. At Dynamic Physical Therapy, we excel in developing personalized physical rehabilitation programs that include these concepts. By carefully considering the individual, we achieve optimal results for our patients and reduce the chance of re-injury.
